Success Stories

Lenny Morales

“I immediately knew after my first day of class that Ramapo was going to lead me on a special path. I owe a huge ‘thank you’ to my professor and advisor, Ben Neill. I was able to take everything he taught me in the classroom and apply it to the real world. A few years later and here I am: an entrepreneur, CEO and founder of My Ticket Life, songwriter, musician and guitarist for Pros & iCons.

My studies at Ramapo enabled me to take an understanding of the music industry and shape my music career into something I was only dreaming of doing upon entering Ramapo. My band, Pros & iCons, has developed a massive resume since I left Ramapo College. We have shared the stage with innumerable nationally touring acts and have performed at colleges, appeared on radio stations and podcasts, have been featured as the musical guest on Staten Island’s television program Entrepreneur Life, and have headlined our own show at Santos Party House in New York City. We have also walked the red carpet backstage at Madison Square Garden beside pop’s biggest names, including Taylor Swift, Maroon 5, One Republic, Ariana Grande, Jessie J, Nick Jonas, Sam Smith, 5 Seconds of Summer, Meghan Trainor, Shawn Mendes and many more.“ – Lenny Morales ‘13 graduated with a degree in Music, concentrating in Music Industry and earned a business essentials certificate from the Anisfield School of Business.
